Holly grew up in Boise, Idaho. She assisted in her first delivery when she was just 14, helping a neighbor’s horse give birth. She attended Boise State University for her associate’s degree in nursing, then moved to Oregon and worked as a hospital nurse for more than 20 years. During this time, she also worked as a certified flight nurse, caring for critically ill or injured patients during air transport.
During her experience as a hospital and flight nurse, Holly realized that she wanted to combine her interest in women’s health with her desire to connect with patients in a deeper and more lasting way. She returned to school for her bachelor’s degree in nursing and master’s degree in nurse midwifery, graduating summa cum laude from both Linfield College and Oregon Health & Science University.
Holly enjoys building relationships with her patients and their families and empowering women through education about their bodies, health, wellness and the labor and delivery process. During her long career as a nurse, she supported many patients and families at the end of life. As a nurse midwife, she is excited to support women and families as they welcome new life during labor, delivery and in the first cherished moments of parenthood.
